Did Neo-Nazis and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist share a love of movies or just an bag of popcorn??
You know one could not help but wonder if old Charlie gave this movie two thumbs up besides saying thank-you or was he just happy the next movie was not Inoconda???
We all know how snakes don't hunt their own.
Several weeks ago, John Ubele
-- the operations manager of the white supremacist Nationalist Coalition
-- sent some Florida public officials a copy of the DVD "Jud SuÃ
," a 1940 German film about a sneaky Jew who tricks an 18th century Duke into giving him control of his kingdom.
According to Wikipedia
, the movie was made by the notoriously anti-Semetic German director Veit Harlan
under the direction of the Nazi Party's chief propagandist Joseph Goebbels
In the letter, Crist (or presumably an aide) thanks Ubele for sending the film "on behalf of myself and the people of Florida."
He repeats an appreciation of "thoughtfulness" and offers to share the film with "the people of Florida."Well, the cold hearts at the White Reference blog were thoroughly warmed, if cautiously:
At this point, there is no need to over-interpret Governor Crist's reaction. It could be that he is simply a buff of old movies and that he finds this movie enjoyable. Eventually, he could find this movie educational as well.
Maybe he thinks it's worth the time to watch it. And maybe he thinks it should be made part of the character first program with Bill Gothard in all schools across the state in Fl..
"Tamar was partially at fault for being raped, because she wasn't spiritually alert and didn't cry out "- Bill Gothard
An interesting point here is Palin's view of charging for rape kits and her view that abortion should not be allowed, even in cases of rape.
"Wives who work outside the home are to be compared to harlots" - Bill Gothard
Uh oh, I guess this may be reason Palin quit her office and the state of Alaska early. Only time will tell on this one.
Such scandals did not help Sanford or Ensign either.
White supremacists and anti-Semites are planning to exploit Tea Parties to disseminate their hateful views and recruit a larger following.
Don Black, is well-known throughout the white supremacist and anti-Semitic community, both for his role as the founder and operator of Stormfront, and for his appearances and speeches at racist and anti-Semitic gatherings.
John Ubele, the Florida-based Operations Manager for the neo-Nazi Nationalist Coalition. A former member of the neo-Nazi National Alliance, Ubele was also a founding member of the Sons of Liberty Committee, a group whose stated goal was for "the interests of European Americans...to reign supreme in all deliberations and actions of our government." Ubele also hosted "Radio with John Ubele," a weekly radio program hosted on Stormfront.
Based in Florida, Black is a former Grand Dragon in the Ku Klux Klan who served prison time for plotting to invade the Caribbean island of Dominica and overthrow its government.
An little more background here
Chloe Black, who lives in West Palm Beach just a few miles from the Fanjuls' Palm Beach mansion, also works as an "executive assistant" in the executive suite of Florida Crystals, where the Fanjul clan's sugar conglomerate is headquartered.
Maybe this is the reason for Crist's interest in the sugar deal???
But Don Black - who lives and operates Stormfront out of a house owned entirely by Chloe and valued at about half a million dollars - is apparently unemployed, although he claims to do some Internet consulting work.
He solicits contributions to the Stormfront site, but says he draws no salary from the operation and has, according to an official Stormfront posting, "financed much of Stormfront's growth out of pocket, personally."
The website is believed to be at least partly supported by the salary that Florida Crystals pays Chloe Black.
The Fanjul family long dominated the sugar industry in Cuba, but fled after the 1959 revolution in that Caribbean nation and rebuilt their business in Palm Beach County. Today, four brothers - Jose, Alfonso, Andres and Alexander - run the family firm, Flo-Sun, from the same building where Chloe Black works.
The raw sugar producer has more than 400,000 acres of cane in Florida and the Dominican Republic and some 25,000 employees in subsidiaries including Florida Crystals, C&H, and Domino, according to the Palm Beach Post.
